Our waiting room
Our dental surgery
Many children will only need a caring approach and gentle introduction to the dental setting in order to cope with treatment. Young or anxious children may require a different approach to their dental treatment including the need for nitrous oxide inhalation sedation (happy air!) or a general anaesthetic. We will discuss all these options in detail before a plan is decided upon.
In most cases non-emergency treatment is not started at the consultation appointment to allow thorough discussion with the parent(s) regarding individual needs. If a child is in pain or has infection we will prescribe relevant medications to control this. By the end of the initial consultation we aim to have a provisional individual treatment plan formulated, including an estimate of costs and number of visits required. You may be presented with different treatment options for discussion at home.
On leaving the surgery you will be given a new appointment and also given all our contact details so if you have any queries regarding the plan we are easy to access at any time.
